second life

I had recently heard of the museum opening from the SL blog entry by Pathfinder Linden, and as a fan of Wright’s architectural works, I was glad to be able to virtually visit them in Second Life.

A few years ago, I had the pleasure of visiting the Robie house at University of Chicago in person, and can now revisit the experience, a few things were missing, but the building itself was pretty much the same.

  • The Frederick C. Robie House of Chicago, IL,
  • the Herbert Jacobs house 1 of Madison, WI;
  • the Herbert Jacobs house 2 also of Madison, WI,
  • The Edgar Kaufmann house of Mill Run, PA and
  • the Seth Petersen Cottage of Lake Delton, WI &
  • a recreation of the Water Dome foutain from The South Florida University of Lakeland, FL
They also plan to be adding additional Wright homes and buildings on a rotating basis

Home on GurshiWhen i first created my Secondlife account several months ago, I didn’t have the best experience as my internet was slow and the grid had so much lag. So, I stopped using Secondlife and sold my original land plot.

However, now that I’m back in and want to explore the world further, I decided it was time to get another plot.

I just purchased a 512 sqm plot on Gurshi. My wife, Heavenly Barkkorn and I decorated the plot with items we accumulated.

Stop on by to visit. I’m on from time to time. If you would like to meet with me some time, IM me.

I first entered “the grid” a few months ago and didn’t do too much as my internet access was slow and the grid itself seemed to have incredible lag issues.

I see now that the system seems more stable and now I feel more able to take advantage of the benefits of using the SecondLife system.

As a web developer, I see a lot of potential in merging the technologies of the standard web pages with secondlife technologies.

It has been said that the future of the internet is a Secondlife, or a metaverse environment… that maybe one day all browsers will function much like the secondlife world browser does now. Time will tell. The following is my journey into this world…
